EASY DOES IT, by Will Addison
Easy Does It is a narrative feature film (by EFI Productions and Worklight Pictures) set in a decrepit fantasy world of 1970s Southern Americana. The story follows two wild best friends- Jack and Scottie, who turn to crime to escape from an oppressive small town life. They tear across the Southwest, hostage in tow, searching for the American Dream as they attempt to rob their way to the imagined utopia of San Clemente, California.
The filmmaking team is comprised of 100% Louisiana residents- most of whom are University of New Orleans film alums. Directed by Will Addison.
Flotsam, by Olivia Motley and Jean-Jacques Martinod:
New Orleans is a city of contradictions. We intend to juxtapose the massive celebration and consumerist nature of Mardi Gras side-by-side to the sober, strategic effort towards keeping it all cleaned up. Treasures instantly turned to trash upon touching the ground, highlighting a fascinating tradition existing in an environmentally fragile environment. A piece that serves to document and enlighten about an element of the infamous story that hasn’t been paid due notice until now.
N. the wreckage of a ship or its cargo found floating on or washed up by the sea. N. people or things that have been rejected and are regarded as worthless.
Battlefield: Home is a feature-length documentary about the issues that impact our veterans and families when the call to duty ends. As our country learns the cost of war through IEDs, TBIs, and PTSD, the story of the individual's struggle can often become lost in a world of acronyms. Battlefield:Home introduces us to real veterans and their real struggles.
